If you've got a fussy eater, I mean a really fussy, you've probably tried just about everything to get them to eat.... So have I!!
I wrote this blog post a while ago with my top tips on getting a fussy kid to eat and it might give you a few new ideas.
As you'd know, it's all in the marketing with kids and food. I don't know how many times I called pancakes flat bread when Alex was little and cauliflower soup white soup - I didn't dare mention any of the vegetables in this white soup to him. Of course now he is older I do tell Alex what's in food but it wasn't always that easy.
I though today I'd show you some of the meal time ideas we have at Happy Tummies that can make life a bit easier for you when feeding fussy eaters.
These plates come in a pack of 3 melamine plates and are heaps of fun for kids. They (or you) can make fun faces with the food - these are great for kids that won't even touch new foods! If you have a few kids you won't even need a pack each because there are 3 plates in every pack :-) My kids love their face plates and still use some older style china ones now.
These plates are awesome for kids that like to graze or have little bits of foods for meals. I think they're especially great for lunches when you can just put a bit of this and a bit of that on the plate and make it fun to eat. No need to put a lolly or chocolate in the end as a surprise every meal.... pop in a cute note they'll love instead, surprise them occasionally with a coin or a small toy, a sticker or anything small.
My only disappointment with these plates is that by the time they were around, my kids were too old for them and weren't interested!! I want to try one ;-)
Our Bento section has lots of great little items to make lunchboxes fun. My kids really like the little tomato sauce bottle and I find silicone bands awesome too. The larger couple are perfect to hold together gluten free wraps and the smaller ones are great around any chopped up food like carrot sticks or cheese stick. We've also got sandwich cutters, egg moulds, little silicone cups and more!
I find reusable food pouches so handy and I know a lot of my customers do too - we sell heaps of them!! We've got a wide variety of brands too so you can pick whatever size and style suits your kids. Fill them up with healthy and safe snacks your kids love.
